Delaware Journal of Public Health

The Delaware Academy of Medicine is a private, nonprofit organization founded in 1930. Our mission is to enhance the well being of our community through medical education and the promotion of public health. Our educational initiatives span the spectrum from consumer health education to continuing medical education conferences & symposia.

The Delaware Public Health Association was officially reborn at the 141st Annual Meeting of the American Public Health Association (AHPA) held in Boston, MA in November, 2013.  At this meeting, affiliation of the DPHA was transferred to the Delaware Academy of Medicine officially on November 5, 2013 by action of the APHA Governing Council. You can learn more about the DPHA by visiting its website

We provide a meeting place for the medical and dental professions and related organizations in our own board room, and in partnership with Christiana Care Health System in the John H. Ammon Medical Education Center (home to the Delaware Academy of Medicine). In addition, we provide financial support for the medical and dental education of students, as well as maintain the State of Delaware's medical and dental archives collections.
